NAKED IN THE WOODS – Historic destinations were always part of our family vacations. Every year, shortly into summer break, mom and dad would take all 9 of us on a 2 week camping trip. This time to Virginia’s Washington and Jefferson National Forests which became my all-time favorite. Girl friend making was priority one for my brother and I, but then, our family day-trips gave us years of lasting influence. From camp we toured on day-trips to Luray Caverns, Natural Bridge, Sherando Lake, and most memorable, Monticello in Charlottesville. Little did I know at age 14, that Charlottesville would become my future home town. Monticello is much the same today as I remember, especially the impressive gardens that we strolled through.
SAVING CABBAGE HEADS – Thomas Jefferson’s, Monticello vegetable garden yields a substantial harvest three seasons per year. The garden is an interpretation of the original as it existed between 1807 and 1814. Planting and harvesting are much the same as practiced during that time. Organic fertilizers, natural pesticides, and irrigation are used to preserve the varietal collection. It has been said, when Monticello gardeners share their fresh vegetables, local chefs love the flavors and nutritional contents presented, because they are an entirely new experience of vegetables. I’m looking forward to another annual visit to that famous childhood nurturing ground.
